You make eating vegan so delicious it’s easy! When I make any of your recipes I KNOW my kids will enjoy and not even realize it’s meatless!
If my kids know that it’s one of Natasha’s recipes, they are always excited to try it!
I feel so good when I can feed my family and guests healthful, plant-based foods – and Natasha makes it easy!
‘Vegan’ sounds daunting and bland, but Natasha makes it fun and easy – and delicious!
Natasha helps incorporate more plants into your diet in a fun, nonjudgmental way!
Not only is your food delicious, when I use your recipes people who wouldn’t on their own eat vegan can’t believe it’s vegan.
I wish I knew you when I was raising my kids. You are teaching a new generation of Jewish children how to eat ethically.
Natasha’s meals are made up of the most beautiful colors and shapes. My kids (and I) were so happy to be eating a rainbow of colors that is so much more fun and creative than a regular plate of veggies!!
We absolutely love Natasha’s fruit and veggie art funshop. Natasha is a gifted individual who is able to make the kids really excited about eating healthy food. The children love experimenting and playing with the fruit and veggies and most of all they can’t wait to eat it. Natasha is extremely engaging and dynamic and has all the kids glued to her and carefully listening to what she’s saying. The instructions are very clear and simple and fun for the kids to do. The workshops are very hands-on and multi-sensory. She chooses age-appropriate activities that are both cool and delicious! Our campers are always asking when it’s fruit and veggie art time. This funshop is truly every parents’ dream!

I had a great time at Natasha’s workshop! It was a fun “Girls’ Night Out” and I learned about (and got to sample) yummy and healthy recipes and ideas for feeding the family and entertaining. I love Natasha’s healthy revolution she’s starting! That we as a community should eat better and take care of each other better by serving healthful foods at our homes and communal events.
Just this morning I packed a Cucumber Kabob for my daughter’s lunch, an idea straight out of Natasha’s workshop last week! I enjoyed the beautiful presentation, nutritious recipes, and the opportunity to “handle” (smell and taste) some new ingredients before shopping for them. It was a great night and perfectly in line with my goals for my family’s eating. Thanks!
Camp Praise from Parents
She had the best week and is still talking about it!
I am ecstatic that my daughter will attend your camp again! She had such an amazing time and still talks about it.
Wow! My daughter said she had a blast – I can see why!
My daughter said EVERYTHING was delicious!
I am amazed by how enthusiastic and adventurous my “extremely picky eater” has been this week. Things she would not touch with a ten-foot pole in my house she came home raving about. [PS, her older siblings are not at all picky, so I have always been quite stymied by her – but apparently you have the magic touch]. :-)”
My son is learning a ton and really enjoying your camp!
My child loved the cooking camp! Thank you for creating such an amazing experience for all of them.
Wow, you made so many amazing, delicious and creative dishes, plus art work.
My son had a BLAST!
The girls are *loving* cooking camp. I can’t believe how much you do with them! Daughter #3 has been inspired to do more cooking/food prep on her own. And one evening Daughter #1 made “Miss Natasha Cookies” with Daughter #3 – 100% on their own, no one else even allowed in the kitchen!
Natasha is awesome, creative, a great chef and so funny, not to mention fun!
Thank you for these newsletters! I love reading them! It is like I am going to camp vicariously thru the children!
My son has had a great week!! Again!! Thank U!
This is the best food I’ve ever eaten.
I like eating delicious healthy food that I got to make myself!
It’s healthy but just as good as the unhealthy versions.
This is the best camp. I’m coming back every year!
This has made me so much less of a picky eater. I want to try everything…and I like it.
It’s really fun. I think was really cool to see the kids let out all their creativity. Mrs. Nadel really lets the kids be creative and give their input into the activities.
“OMG, my son is eating spinach. He can’t get enough of the strawberry dressing!”
“Thank you for an amazing week of cooking (and yummy food!). The girls had a great time! My youngest got her confidence up and my oldest loved being in the kitchen and trying new things. As the week went on, she was making things for lunch, inspired by your dinner menu. It was great!”
“My kids started this camp as beginners with not much cooking experience. Both have become much more confident using knives and measuring tools and cooking on the stovetop during this camp. They are excited and proud to taste their creations.”
“This camp was loads of fun. Spending time with my son, cooking delicious healthy food for our family was a true joy. We learned a lot about cooking technique and healthy eating to boot!”
